 Briggs Library staff members enjoyed the SDSU Festival of Cultures held April 3 in Frost Arena.  In addition to exploring the exhibits, enjoying the entertainment, and partaking in the food, staff members hosted a booth to promote library resources.

Here are a few ways to further explore world cultures at the library, in-person or online.

 

·         Peruse the library’s collection of local, regional, and world newspapers found on the main level of the library.

 

·         Consult the library’s Topic Guides.  Included are guides in:  American Indian Studies, Modern Languages, Political Science, European Studies, Geography.

 

·         Use the library’s catalog to find records for books, government documents, DVD’s, and electronic books.

 

·         Consult resources in the library’s Reference collection on the library’s main level, including multivolume works on Culture and Customs organized by country and Food Culture organized by country or region.

 

·         Use one of our many databases to find articles in magazines, journals, or newspapers. 

 

·         Explore Government Information, including international information.

 

·         Ask a librarian to help with your research.  Consult with a librarian in person at the Information Desk or click on the Ask Us icon on the library’s homepage for information on connecting by phone, e-mail or instant messaging.
